No beef—just two people going their separate ways.

Currently, Justin Bieber (opens in new tab)Selena Gomez (opens in new tab), and Demi Lovato—artists who have been in the spotlight since they were kids—are all promoting 1) new albums and 2) the adult versions of themselves. They've all been through a lot, and Lovato is the latest to open up about how much she's changed in the past few years.

One of the things Demi has (seemingly) left in the past is her famous friendship with Gomez. When asked if they talk in Complex (opens in new tab) in its October/November issue (opens in new tab), Demi answered simply, "Nope." Was this because of Selena's on-off relationship with Justin Bieber? "Not really. Not anymore."

"He's actually a nice guy," she explained. "I don't really know him that well, but he seems to have grown up. He looks like he's maturing. But, you know, when you're young and you get older, you change and people change. You have things in common, and then all of a sudden, you don't. It's just a part of life."

She and Selena at the very least don't seem to have any bad blood (and perhaps have rekindled their friendship since the interview). The two posed together two weeks ago:

And on Demi's birthday last month, had this exchange:

Demi's current crew is mostly celeb free, though, she told Complex. Exceptions include boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, Iggy Azalea, Nick and Joe Jonas, Hailee Steinfeld, and Jennifer Lopez. She spent New Year's in Park City with J.Lo: "It was so nice and awesome to watch her just blend in. But also not blend in because she's still decked out in fur. But to wake up and she's in her sweats with no makeup and still looks flawless, you're kind of like, 'What the f--k? You're not even human.'" But, like, really.
